spitzer, and this is sup. vice president joe biden and made paul ryan clash early. martha raddatz moderating and keeping a tight grip on the proceedings, the topics included this sharp exchange on social security and medicare. >> social security and medicare going bankrupt. if you reform these programs for my generation, 55 and below. >> who do you believe him or me, a plan that added $6,400 a year more and with regard to social security we will not privatize it. >> shocking to know that both sides claimed victory after the debate. democrats praised biden on the substance of his arguments while republicans attacked him on style points. >> biden new to pick up that flag and go in. did he it tonight and effectively. >> i don't think from a stylistic point of view that he did himself any good. >> he looked like an arrogant cheshire cat smiling and laughing every time ryan spoke. >> joe biden is joe biden. he's authentic and real. he's state forward and he says what he thinks and he says what he means. >> mitch mcconnell criticizing style. more from mitt romney and former president bi
and you think joe biden will come out with a baseball bat ready to beat up paul ryan. what do you expect from paul ryan--i mean from joe biden and what do you expect next week from president obama given his acknowledgment that too pot light didn't work. >> let's start with tomorrow night. paul ryan will be interesting to watch. he has had a lot of experience doing the sunday shows being a policy wonk in the committee room and committee mark up, and on cable television news but he does not have experience in one-on-one debate situation. joe biden has more experience in this debate situation but he has not been doing it, he has not given a lot of interviews in four years. that said joe biden is a strong debater, and he'll probably be very aguess aggressive, but not nearly as aggressive the president is planning to be when he faces mitt romney again. >> eliot: i hope as we see him take apart the numbers of the paul ryan numbers and say it doesn't add up and be relentless and demanding and answers to paul ryan because we can fill 12 hours of debate and playing rope a dope and giveing answers
budgets put together, how is increasing that increasing our security? paul ryan said that the terrorists would be afraid of us if we spent more money. >> there is another angle to this, the game change would have been if governor romney had gone to the true conservative position where he said, i want to get out of afghanistan earlier. if he becomes president the military is not going to want a long-term counter insurgency in afghanistan. the country wants us out and the president can do more to get us out quicker. other than that it's complete pandering to the neo-cons. >> eliot: afghanistan, iran, syria, mitt romney is 0-for-3 good rhetoric, zero in substance. let's talk about libya which has been the hot spot with the horror of the bengahzi consulate. this has been the biggest problem for the white house where you have the strategy. >> yes. >> eliot: it seems at a political level mitt romney is capitalizing on what appears to be a moment of weakness by the administration but is not libya in essence a success story. >> yes, it's difficult for romney to talk about. he says today we're st
be revenue neutral. you wouldn't add to the deficit. let's go through how you would do that. >> romney ryan campaign we're very excited about all the details of our new tax plan. it's thick with arithmetic, math, and the sorts of things we haven't had time to walk the american people through. so let's do that right now and just take a hard look at these numbers. [ screaming ] >> what i want to do is make it simpler, fairer. i want to encourage the economy to grow again. >> so you're repealing obama-care but keeping the good parts of healthcare, social security and medicare for seniors and you're going to build more submarines and destroyers than the pentagon wants, i want to ask you a question. are you a wizard. >> i'm not going to layout a piece of legislation here. >> we can't wait to walk you through all the details math point by math point. there are some tricky--sasquatch tricky--sasquatch. sasquatch, you come here! you come here, no, no, yeti. >> hi there, it's a trolley. it's on the way to the neighborhood of make believe. that's where me and paul ryan get most of our facts from. >>
to resell a softer package financially, and i think paul ryan is now an achilles heel for this new ship. so biden can shift that to have an impact. but obama has to come very strong the next time around. >> eliot: we will see. this is what makes it a good sport to watch. thanks for coming on the program both of you. now to my point. (vo) jennifer granholm ... >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. build a ground-breaking car. good. now build a time machine. go here, find someone who can build a futuristic dash board display. bring future guy back. watch him build a tft display like nothing you've ever seen. get him to explain exactly what that is. the thin film transistor display... [ male announcer ] mmm, maybe not. just show it. customize the dash give it park assist. the fuel efficiency flower thing. send future
. >> look some of us have a very difficult life, we are trying to defeat romney and ryan and right-wing extremism, and trying to buck up this president, get him to stand up and say what the american people want to hear; is that he is going to defend them take on the big money, take on wall street in a meaningful way, and protect working families. >> eliot: yep. >> so we're working in two directions. >> eliot: you are exactly right. and one little piece of evidence that what you see as the hidden or not so hidden mission of the republican party is in the short clip we played just before you came on which is orrin hatch's statement when he refers to the wealthiest people in our country as the most productive members of society. >> if our friends on wall street were all so productive why did they drag us into this horrendous recession for which they had to be bailed out by the middle class of this country. the bottom line here is more tax cuts for the wealthy is not only obscene, eliot in my view it is really bad economics. >> eliot: so you have diagnosed it, explained it
